PDP condemns use of force on Ashura processions
Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has strongly condemned the use of force on peaceful Muharram processions in Kashmir, terming such action ‘blatant display of barbarism in broad daylight’.
In a statement issued, PDP spokesman and party’s media advisor Syed Suhail Bukhari said that militating against a peaceful religious gathering has reflected government’s iron fist approach it has been adopting in Kashmir without any compunction. He added that government’s such ‘ruthless measures’ have proved beyond doubt that religion is being demonised, democratic dissent criminalised and cruelty is being normalised in Kashmir.
Paying glorious tributes to martyrs of Karbala, the spokesman said that the supreme sacrifices made by Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S) and his companions at Karbala taught us a lesson on upholding the principles of righteousness in all trying circumstances and denying forces of evil to make us bow or succumb before them.
